  1. So, give or take, we were spending about 3.7T with receipts of about 2.4T. That’s a deficit of about 1.3T per year.

    So, let’s continue with his math…

    In two years, he claims they reduced the deficit by 2.5T.

    2.5T / 2 = 1.25T per year.

    Add that to our actual average deficit and you get


    So, basically, he’s saying our deficit was way worse than reported, i.e., the government has been lying to us all along.

    I have no doubt he is lying to us now.
